Da’Rick Rogers was a very talented wide receiver prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class, but he fell undrafted due to some serious character issues. After the seven rounds wrapped up, the Bills and head coach Doug Marrone reached out to the 22-year-old receiver to give him one shot at showing what he can offer.
So far, so good.
According to WGR 550 Buffalo, Rogers is a “clear cut favorite” to land on the team’s 53-man roster.
That could be bad news for veteran Brad Smith and others like Chris Hogan and Marcus Easley who will be competing for the final two wide receiver spots on the roster along with Rogers.
If you had to guess who would land the final spot, you would have to give the advantage to Smith.
It is unlikely that Easley will find a home with Buffalo once the regular season rolls around, but Hogan is a candidate to make the practice squad if he were to clear waivers.
This is all part of the fun of camp battles and football being back, so let’s all relax and enjoy the competition. For all we know, “clear cut favorite” could become “clearly cut” in a few months.
